Before moving to the Isle of Man in 1998, Neil spent many years travelling throughout Ireland visiting ancient prehistoric monuments. The complex geometric and spiral carvings on the great stones intrigued him. Their meaning remains open to interpretation and overlaps with the realms of folklore and legend.
Upon moving to the Island, he discovered many similarities in local folklore and history. The culture, heritage and landscape of the Isle of Man felt almost familiar to him, and the Island became his home. Neil's work reflects his passion for prehistory, mythology and the land; using local materials, he is inspired by what feels like a common heritage.
